Cancellation, Deposit & Booking Policies
Accommodation means the apartment, guest room and or suite described via the Provider/Host's website.
Guest/Prospective Guest means the person (or persons) who will be staying in the Provider/Host’s apartment/suite/guest room.
Host/Provider/Supplier, is the registered legal Owner of the building located at 130 East 62nd Street, NY, NY 10065.
Accommodation Charge(s) means the charges and or fees to be paid by a Guest in relation to the accommodations, housekeeping (at the agreed level of frequency to be clarified at time of enquiry), Internet, TV, utilities, and all local taxes. Prior to making a reservation, the Guest needs to receive the full cost estimate for the booking dates desired from the Host.
BOOKING A STAY: Guest is responsible for reading the complete listing & policies detailed herein before submitting a reservation.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Host permits the Guest to occupy the Accommodation for the period stated in the Booking Agreement for the purpose of holiday or short-term occupation.
The Host and the Guest agree that the Guest occupies the Accommodation as a licensee and that no relationship of landlord and tenant is created by this Agreement or otherwise.
The Guest and the Host agree that a legally binding contract between the Guest and the Host is formed and entered into when the Booking Agreement is dispatched via this booking portal.
CANCELLATIONS: Host adheres to a strict cancellation policy. Once a Guest has submitted a reservation request, Guest has entered into a binding agreement to book the specified accommodation. Accommodation charges (the total nightly rate, fees and taxes charged) are not refundable. Guests will not receive a refund if they cancel the booking at any time after it is accepted. Cancellations are charged 100% of the booking arrangement. The same cancellation will also apply in the case of the booking arrangement being shortened. We recommend the purchase of travel insurance is recommended.
MINIMUM NIGHT STAY REQUIREMENT: We have a 30 minimum night stay requirement. Guests or Prospective Guests should contact Host prior to booking to ascertain what length minimum is in place for the dates Guest is looking to book.
SECURING BOOKING: Due to a dynamic marketplace, apartments/suites cannot be held without an initial downpayment and/or payment in full. Unfortunately Host cannot accommodate requests for courtesy holds. br>
In order to secure a booking, prospective guests must submit an online reservation via the Provider/Host’s booking portal and provide their credit card information. We recommend Guests do not place a reservation unless they are able to make immediate full payment for selected dates.
Once the Provider/Host receives a Guest’s online booking, a credit card hold in the amount equivalent to 25% of one month’s base rate for the accommodation will be placed on the Guest’s credit card. This is not a charge. The 25% credit card hold will serve to place a hold on the accommodations for no more than a 12-hour period or alternatively, if agreed to by the Provider/Host, for a mutually agreed time period such as close of business, the next morning or a set period agreed with Provider/Host and Prospective Guest. The stay must be paid for in full within the agreed upon hold period. The default hold period is 12 hours. Any other period of time must be agreed to in writing by the Provider/Host. If the Guest does not make payment within the agreed upon hold period, the 25% hold will be converted to a charge. This fee is not refundable. If payment is not received within the agreed upon time period, the accommodation will be released back to the market. The 25% of one-month charge will not be considered rent or entitlement to a quarter of a month's stay; it will be a non recoverable charge for not completing the booking. If Guest would like to use a credit card to pay for their stay (Provider/Host needs to approve), the full charge will be processed immediately upon placing the reservation. See below for Credit Card Processing surcharge information.
Should the Provider/Host have another enquiry during the hold period which would cancel said provisionally held enquiry the Provider/Host will attempt to contact the Prospective Guest and give the Prospective Guest the opportunity to make immediate final payment arrangements. This must be done by telephone conversation (no voice messages) and or email/text at the time of release.
ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF PAYMENT/TIMING OF PAYMENT:
*ACH Electronic Credit (preferred), Wire transfer (instructions will be provided) or certified bank check. If wiring, we ask that Guest pay there bank’s wiring fees directly to the bank so that Host receive full payment.
*Any shortage will be owed and payable prior to Guest’s arrival date.
*A pre-authorization (“hold”) of the Guest’s credit card can be made for the initial 25% of one month. If we do not receive payment within the designated hold period, the 25% hold will be converted to a charge as payment of the non-recoverable fee for not completing the booking. Holds that have not been converted to a charge will automatically be released after 7 days.

Guests agree to be responsible for any damages, stains and soiling to bedding.
Cleaning: In order to limit personal contact as much as possible during Covid-19, weekly cleaning & linen service (Studios:$65/week or Full Floor Suites: $85/week) has been paused. As an alternative we are providing monthly cleaning and linen service (mandatory) or what would be considered an exit cleaning fee ($150/month) for single month stays. The fee is pro-rated for partial months. This policy is still evolving. We would like to resume more frequent service as soon as it is deemed safe and with consultation with our guests. Guest's preferences will be taken into account as much as possible. Please inquire before placing your reservation if you have questions about this as this policy is still evolving. Guests are expected to maintain the premises on a regular ongoing basis during their stay including all appliances, bathroom and kitchen equipment and furniture.

When weekly service is resumed, Guest is responsible for coordinating weekly cleanings with the housekeeping staff or Provider/Host's designated representative or surrogate. Provider/Host supplied sheets and towels included.
If Guest leaves the premises excessively dirty or leaves an excessive amount of trash and recycling in the apartment, Host reserves the right to charge a supplemental fee for additional housekeeping. Additionally, if there is staining on the bedding, upholstery or rugs host may deduct cleaning fees from the security deposit or for the value of the item damaged if removal of stains not possible.
Guest shall permit Provider/Host's designated housekeeper to enter the premises to maintain and clean the apartment/suite and for the collection of trash at reasonable daytime hours, including weekends, by prior appointment with a minimum of 24-hour notice to Guest or fewer hours if Guest agrees. If for whatever reason Guest cannot accommodate the proposed housekeeping schedule, Guest agrees to waive the housekeeping service for the week.
We strive to keep the weekly housekeeping fee as low as possible and can only do this with the help of Guest’s cooperation. Guest is responsible for regular ongoing maintenance of the apartment. The housekeeping fee shall cover only reasonable cleaning of the apartment/suite that has been regularly maintained throughout the term of the occupancy agreement and will not apply to extraordinary cleaning such as caked on stove and oven stains/grease (if applicable) or rug/upholstery cleaning.
Linens: If you would like linens included with your stay (sheets, blankets, duvet cover, pillows, etc.) there is a one time $100 and a monthly $25 linen service fee (sheets/towels only). Guest may opt to supply their own linens instead. Linen service is limited to bed sheets + 2 pillowcases per person + 2 towels per person. Quilts, coverlets, bedspreads duvet covers/pillow inserts & down duvets/decorative pillows, mattress pads, cotton blankets are laundered seasonally or upon occupancy turn over at the discretion of the Host.

• NY city hotel occupancy tax 5.875%
• NY city hotel tax $2.00 / room / night
• A rental home may have more than one room. The tax will be $2.00 per room per day on each of the rooms that make up the home plus the hotel room occupancy tax for the entire home rental. (For example: The tax on a home with 4 rooms will be $8.00 per day plus the hotel room occupancy tax for the entire suite rental). New York City defines a room as “Any room of any kind, other than a bathroom or lavatory, in any part or portion of a hotel/home which is available for, or let out for, use or possession for any purpose other than a place of assembly.”
No tax is due from guests who are considered to be permanent residents. To be considered a permanent resident of New York State, a guest must stay for at least 180 consecutive days without interruption (see also below information).
To be exempt from all taxes, the occupant must have a signed agreement with the term exceeding 179 consecutive days. If the occupant does not complete 180 days of continuous occupancy, any taxes not previously collected become immediately due and payable (see below).
Technically, a person who enters into an agreement for occupancy for 180 consecutive days or more does not become a “permanent resident” under the law until he/she has been an occupant for 180 consecutive days, and the operator is liable for the collection of the tax until that occupancy for 180 consecutive days has been completed. However, an occupant can obtain permanent resident status prior to completing 180 days of consecutive occupancy by requesting a lease from the hotel operator. Where the occupant has requested such a lease, the hotel operator should not collect the tax for any day, starting on the date the lease was requested, that falls within a period of continuous occupancy by the occupant. However, if the occupant does not complete 180 days of continuous occupancy, any taxes not previously collected become immediately due and payable and are to be collected by the hotel operator.
SUPPLEMENTAL MONTHLY FEES:
*Housekeeping (mandatory): $65 (half-floor suites) or $85 per week (full-floor suites). Cleaning performed approximately 1x per week. Weekly housekeeping service is on pause. Please see above information.
*Utilities: $185/month (half-floor suites) or $285/month (full-floor suites) includes wifi, electric, heat, hot water, basic cable or ROKU provided.
*Air Conditioning: $125 per month (half floor suites) or $175 (full-floor suites). Air Conditioning is installed in the month of June and is optional for the month of October. A/C in the Garden Room and Knickerbocker Suite is required June-October.
BED USAGE: If the apartment has been booked for single occupancy and the suite is furnished with multiple beds, regular housekeeping shall be limited to use of one bed. Beds not in use will not be made with sheets. If the apartment has been booked for double occupancy housekeeping shall be limited to no more than two beds. Guests need to coordinate which beds will be utilized during their stay with Provider/Host's housekeeping staff. Guests are asked to keep in mind that the making of the beds is one of the housekeeper’s most time consuming tasks.

DAMAGE TO THE ACCOMMODATION AND SECURITY DEPOSIT - Guest shall pay a security deposit. The amount of the deposit is to be determined at time of booking. The security deposit may not be used by Guest toward payment of charges for the room or fees/taxes. If the Accommodation (or any part of it) or any of the Host’s personal property is damaged during the stay, beyond reasonable wear and tear, the Guest must 1. immediately notify the Host; and 2. will be liable in full for the costs of that damage. The Guest confirms that if there is damage to the Accommodation or any of the Host’s personal property over and above fair wear and tear and/or if the Accommodation is heavily soiled so as to require in the Host’s reasonable opinion an industrial clean then the Host may make appropriate deductions from the Security Deposit. Within 30 days following termination of the occupancy term, Provider/Host agrees to return the security deposit to Guest, adjusted for any damages and outstanding bills. The security deposit shall be returned only after inspection by Provider/Host and Provider/Host determines that no damages, loss or injury (other than from reasonable wear and tear) has been done to the premises or property therein and that all charges and fees have been paid.

ASSIGNMENT/SUBLETTING: Guest shall not attempt to assign license to others unless otherwise agreed by Provider/Host. The premises shall not be occupied or left in the care of anyone not listed herein, including overnight Guest’s.
CONFIRMED GUEST’S & ADDITIONAL OVERNIGHT GUEST POLICY
• We operate under an extended stay hotel model in that our rates are based on occupancy. We technically are an extended stay residential hotel facility and this format is part of our business model, which helps keep regular rates as low as possible. Monthly seasonal rates are discounted for single occupancy.
• The occupancy agreement for the Guest’s stay is based on a specific number of occupants. If after taking occupancy Guest expects a regular overnight visitor, please speak to Provider/Host about making an adjustment to agreement. Guest should keep in mind that the Provider/Host utilizes a hybrid version of the hotel model as far as Guest’s and charges based on occupancy. This as opposed to an open-ended apartment model, although even conventional rental apartment pricing is somewhat based on occupancy where maintenance and utility charges can get adjusted. As one might already be aware, it is more costly to us when additional persons stay at the house in terms of additional housekeeping, laundry service, utilities and further wear and tear. Additionally, we endeavor to keep the occupancy for the house at a manageable level that will not put a strain on our plumbing infrastructure. We hope Guest understands this and this is pointed out in our literature, website and rental contract.
• The number of occupants as specified in the occupancy agreement must be adhered to. Only Guest’s in the original reservation who’s IDs have been verified in advance may stay in the apartment. Unauthorized overnight visitors, any sublet, sublease or substitution of guest’s is strictly forbidden. Additional occupants are subject to a supplemental fee.
• Additional Occupant Fee: Subject to designated occupancy limits for each suite (see below), we charge a monthly management, additional wear & tear and combined supplemental utilities & housekeeping charge of $750-$950 + tax or $65/night plus tax.
• The Guest of the premises may have overnight visitors provided the maximum occupancy limit is not violated.
• The Guest of the suite MUST be physically present when hosting an overnight visitor.
• The Guest/Main occupant of the suite must provide advance notice to the Host of any overnight Visitors.
• There are occupancy maximums in place for suites/guest rooms/apartments as listed below. Children and babies count toward the occupancy maximums.
• Beds/aerobeds may not be added to any of the suites. Sofa's may not be used as beds.
• Maximum Occupancies:
Half-Floor Suites: 1-2
Full-Floor Suites: 2
• Since the building has an unenclosed staircase, it is recommended that children be older than 10 years of age to reside in the apartment. Any apartment with children 10 years old or young and residing must have window guards installed.
